Down throughout history many books have been lost — destroyed in fires or floods, burned by frustrated authors, lost by agents, disappeared in the mists of time.  Stuart Kelly attempts to catalog as many of these as he can, with as much information on the missing book as he can gather. Fascinating.  Can’t wait to start it for real.

I have misplaced a beautifully illustrated copy of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Do you think he might be able to find it for me?

After six months of struggling with it - halfheartedly - falling asleep with it in my lap dozens of times - I finally admitted defeat tonight. Gave up less than halfway through. Skimming forward is not promising for strong tailwinds ahead.

Dry. Boring. No authors I really care about (I'm not into history or Victorian literature and I certainly don't read Greek or Roman authors). I guess I got a small feel for the huge volume of literature lost to the sands of time. Maybe the particulars don't matter.

Oh, and Kelly says your illustrated copy of Hitchhiker's Guide is with your sister's niece?
